About the event

Clubs can have the best safeguarding resources possible, but there is no guarantee these will be applied or applied qualitatively without a safeguarding culture. As shown in the University of Auckland's research Perceptions of Child Safeguarding Policies in New Zealand Sport*, which evidences:

  • 34% of people as unsure or certain of any child safeguarding policy in their club/sport.
  • High levels of uncertainty about whether more guidance was needed in their club/sport.
  • 29% believed their current child safeguarding policy was not helping at all, and 23% were unsure if it was helping.
  • 60% stated their child safeguarding policy had not changed their coaching practice.

As per child safety best practice, this engaging and informative 2-hour Being a Child Safe Club Workshop moves the spotlight from resources to creating a safeguarding culture and can help attendees:

  • Explore the fundamentals of being a child safe organisation and creating a safeguarding culture.
  • Recognise their organisational child safety strengths and needs.
  • Identify practical steps to help create a safeguarding culture and demonstrate child safe best practice.

The workshop is best suited for staff in a position of influence, for example:

  • Governance or Leadership
  • Managerial and/or Supervisory Staff
  • Staff in specialist roles, such as: - Human Resources - Safeguarding and Child Protection Positions - Learning and Development - Organisational Development/Fundraising Positions

Attendees receive a certificate of attendance. To help evidence Professional Development further, all certificates reference the full 2-hour study time, the course aim and objectives.
